Dormouse Disaster

It is a dangerous time of year here. Apart from the 2 red squirrel road deaths in the last week I found a young dormouse drowned in my watering can today.I think it had been attracted by berries on Leycesteria.Believe it or not the watering can is part of my badger barricade to deter them from taking my tomatoes & comes into play as soon as I see damage.I then checked a water butt near our wildlife hedge a found a dead vole & 3 dead sexton beetles.Have now replaced the mesh on top.Will keep watering can safe now :(
